I have several pair of AA wedge sandals and am a big fan. These were no exception, love them. Bought to wear w/ maxi dresses and jumpsuits and it works perfectly with both. 2 days after receiving, wore them to a party where I was able to dance all night with no pain at all! I am normally an 8 or 8 1/2 but always wear a size 9 in this brand. I have problem feet so this style of wedge heel is the only way I can get some height and still be super comfortable. My only complaint with this brand is when buying it in a color, the entire bottom section of the shoes are black, therefore not matching the uppers. Wish the bottom part would match the top color because only black shows while walking when wearing maxi dress or pants that need a subtle color. As always, Zappos has wonderful customer service!

Great sandals right out of the box! I took these shoes on a recent cruise vacation. I tried them on at home but hadn't worn them until on the vacation. They were very comfortable. I love that you can dress them up or down. They fit well on my narrow foot whereas some of the other sandals by this maker were too wide.I do wish that for the price they were leather as advertised. It was not a deal breaker as there is a small amount of material and they are so comfortable.

Unfortunately I had to return these because the ankle strap was two times to big. I am not sure whose ankle is that size, but the last adjusting size it went to I could fit my foot out of and slip it back on. The back of the shoe that has the straps were also big and the little straps belled out if you walked. Wish the straps were normal size because the shoe was cute.

I opened the box and didn't even try the shoe on. They looked and felt so cheap. The cork was plastic and shiny. There is no leather; it's all man-made product. This is a shoe that would sell at a shoe warehouse for $29.

These shoes are very cute. Pretty much what I was looking for - a casual shoe in a neutral color to wear on vacation. Unfortunately, the fit was extremely sloppy and I had to return them. Very disappointed.

These are very big and very wide and I could not even walk in them - my foot felt like it was in a boat. I suggest ordering a whole size smaller than what you normally wear. Unfortunately since I wear a size 5 that is not possible for me.

The part that goes around my foot is very large. So large I have to return. My foot flops around while in the shoe. Other than that it's great.

It is everything as advertised. It fits perfect and very light weight and comfortable. Love it.

I ordered these in a 7 and they were half to a full size too big (and I wear a size 7 95 percent of the time). I reordered in a size 6, and while the size seems perfect, I also ordered a pair of the Birkenstock Madrids which I think will be more comfortable and just as stylish for nearly the same price.

These were so narrow and small that I couldn't get my foot into a size 10. I'm usually a 9.5-10 and I don't have a particularly wide foot. I thought it was crazy how small these felt. I even thought they were missed marked or shipped wrong but it said "10" right on the shoe.

Beautiful and comfortable! You definitely need to buy this shoe. It's extremely comfortable and makes your foot look dainty/sexy/beautiful! I bought the nude for vacation and it was perfect - it matches everything and dresses outfits up!

I love these shoes! They are my go-to summer sandals. My first pair survived a rough and tumble summer and I was bummed out I had to bid them farewell. But, as fate would have it, I was at the doctor's office and another patient had them on! She said she "just ordered them" on Zappos! I ordered another pair on line the same day. I hope they stock these forever! They are awesome!

What happened to your other colors in Gayle, size 4? Champagne? Gold? With the exception of Gayle, I fear that Athena Alexander is lowering it's standards by resorting to more and more man-made materials. Do they not understand that the customer will pay more for a comfortable leather shoe? I am doubly disappointed because I wear a size 4, and Athena is one of the few companies that even makes a size 4. But if the size 4 hurts my foot, the correct size does not help. Please, AA, bring back more of your Gayle leather slides and give us more like it. Read the reviews here, at Nordstrom and others--women love the Gayle slide. Enough already with thongs; thongs rub a lot of feet, so limit that style to a couple, not a half dozen! And stop with the vinyl/plastic uppers; we want leather that moves with our feet. You can't make a shoe that fits every foot but you can give us a material (leather) that MOVES with every foot. Why don't you get this? Why do you want to turn your wonderful shoe line into "Cinderella's of Boston"? quality? We loved you before. Come back to us. Leather uppers!

So disappointing. Do not buy this shoe. It runs 3 to 4 sizes small. I ordered an 11 and my friend who wears a 9 couldn't fit into my "11".

The shoe fits well and is easy to walk in, but the way the rhinestones are applied looks cheap. I needed them for in event the day they arrived so I kept them. Otherwise I would have returned them.

I bought these for my upcoming wedding. Wearing them around the house they are very comfortable and fit well. The color looks like the picture (silver) and they fit true to size.

Cute shoe and soft upper would be comfortable if they fit. Also lightweight which is nice for wearing and packing/traveling. I wish they made these in half sizes and/or wide width. I'm borderline "wide" and can usually get away with a medium width if I order 1/2 size up. These don't have 1/2 sizes but I tried anyway. Just a little too tight. Bummer. They're going back.

True to size. This color not very well made, but comfortable. The ivory ones are better quality (I ordered this shoe in two colors). Not sure why color would make a difference. Had a small tear when I received them and Zappos immediately took care of the issue, sending me a new pair. They are holding up well and cozy!

I was looking for a cute, comfortable shoe, with not too much "bling!" to wear to a formal birthday party next month. This one fit the bill. It's very cute in person. Unfortunately, the color clashes with my dress. Besides that, try as I might, I just can't walk in slides.
